Man City demonstrate that they have learned from Manchester United in this ominous Premier League warning.

MANCHESTER CITY are showing signs of dominating for many years to come.

Pep Guardiola may have been concerned about the impact COVID-19 is having on his Manchester City team, but he did not need to be.

The fact is that his City team is better prepared than any of their rivals to deal with the chaos created by the ongoing pandemic, and their frightening depth has been built by borrowing a page from Manchester United’s playbook.

While the Spaniard was not present for City’s FA Cup tie with Swindon Town on Friday night, his team did not disappoint.

They cruised to a 4-1 victory, securing a spot in the fourth round of the competition with ease.

The news that 21 members of City’s first-team bubble, including Guardiola himself, had been forced to isolate due to preparations being hampered, had dominated the build-up to the match.

Despite the fact that seven players were quarantined, City made only four changes to their starting lineup, which included ten international stars and the exciting Cole Palmer.

More importantly, the composition of City’s bench demonstrated why the Premier League champions will continue to dominate English football for many years to come.

As onlookers were once again provided with a glimpse into City’s future, the experienced duo of Scott Carson and Aymeric Laporte were joined by a slew of highly-promising City youngsters.

Cieron Slicker, Kayky, Oscar Bobb, CJ Egan-Riley, Luke Mbete, James McAtee, and Romeo Lavia completed the matchday squad, and are just a few of the club’s Elite Development Squad’s current crop.

Guardiola’s hiring came at an ideal time for City.

The club has been transformed from head to toe thanks to the world’s best coach taking on arguably the most ambitious project in world football.

When he first arrived at the Etihad in 2016, he made a point of insisting that football be played the right way – his way – and the club is now reaping the benefits of his efforts.

Take Palmer, for instance.

The 19-year-old has blossomed as a result of his development in City’s already illustrious academy, and he is a natural fit for the first team whenever he is called upon.

Palmer started the City ball rolling on Friday night by twisting and turning his marker before putting it on a plate for Bernardo Silva.
